n We toured the White House
n We went to the National Holocaust Museum and were amply disturbed.
n Then we tried to see the Washington Monument but there was a thunderstorm and we had to vacate it.
n So we walked to the WWII memorial and from there we went to Lincoln’s Memorial. From that point we walked over to the Vietnam memorial. Dad knew of someone who had been killed from Twain Harte so we looked up his name.
